I choose to self insure. Until Obama Care kicks in it's still my choice not someone else's. If I need care I pay for it.
If I needed some kind of expensive surgery, Id go to some fancy doctor in another country with dynomite creditials who apprecites cash. The doctors in the U.S. charge too much and you can get care elsewhere.
Fire you are right on. My mother fell down the stairs at my condo in Cabo, she had 8 stitches in her shin, numerous cuts and bruises dressed and treated, a CAT scan, x-rays and was seen by a Neurologist and Internist, given her complete record plus all test results, tetanus shot, antibiotics and pain pills, final bill.....$758.00 and instead of 4 hours in the ER, we were in and out and home again within 2 hours of the accident. Do you have any idea what that would have cost here? Thousands! And the quality of care was first rate. It's where I'm planning on having my medical work done, and I am so happy I have one foot in another country.
